[Audiobook Review] Lethal Circuit by Lars Guignard

Lethal Circuit (Michael Chase, #1)
Lethal Circuit
Lars Guignard
A Chinese satellite is on crash course with Earth.
It contains enough plutonium to irradiate a large city.
And that's the good news...

In the tradition of Tom Clancy, Michael Crichton, and Robert Ludlum, comes a new hero.

Michael Chase is a twenty-six year old backpacker, a recent college grad, an amateur. He flew to Hong Kong to find his missing father. Four hours later, he's running for his life. The Chinese Secret Police want him dead. The Conspiracy wants him dead. And the one person who he thinks is on his side, may want him dead too. If Michael is going to live, he'll need to find a hidden piece of Nazi technology lost since World War II. And he'll have to do it before anyone else. Because if he doesn't, a little plutonium is going to be the least of his problems.

After Michael’s father went missing, he made it his mission to fly to China and try to find him. After arriving to China, he is suddenly mistaken for a spy and is being haunted by Chinese police. But after locating the video of his father just few months earlier, he has hope and it’s up to him to solve the puzzle. Even after learning the truth about his father makes him question everything.

On top of that, he needs to located a hidden piece of Nazi technology lost since World War II. But people surrounding him might not be who they say they are and Michael Chase needs to remember all of the lessons that his father taught him.

This was very entertaining audiobook. The action, the characters, and the story was very well developed. Even when you read the summary of the book and know what to expect – there are still enough twists to keep the story refreshing and interesting. The narrator was perfect for the story, although there was some changes with the voice which made me very confused. It’s like for 10 seconds you get another guy starting to talk in the middle of the sentence. Overall, it’s awesome book for anyone who enjoys thrillers.
